While the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys won’t be televised this year, key components of it will be available via the Twitter app Periscope on the 1st live streaming channel for Periscope … Parachute TV!

According to The Wrap on Wednesday, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has teamed up with  Parachute TV, to provide Daytime TV fans with unique, behind-the-scenes access on Periscope. Along with red carpet coverage on Parachute TV, Emmy winners will have an immediate opportunity to interact with fans on Periscope, moments after they make their way backstage.

Awards shows are doing an incredible job with live-streaming apps like Periscope and Facebook Live,” said Parachute TV Co-Founder Caroline Lesley, who will also serve as one of the event’s hosts on Periscope. “And giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite celebrities backstage is another great step forward.”   Parachute TV, which launched on Periscope last August, now reaches more than a million viewers.

Parachute TV will cover the red carpets of both the main ceremony on Sunday, May 1st and the Creative Arts Emmys on Friday night, April 29th.

So what do you think of getting an inside look at what’s happening via Periscope during the two Daytime Emmy ceremonies?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

While red carpet is appreciated by some I tend to go for the ceremony more.. That’s nice for those who enjoy them.. Hopefully the rumor is true and the telecast will be shown on line the very next day.. That will be nice

I do not care about the daytime emmy’s
I do not care about the talk, cooking, game shows .
I do not care to waste my time watching awards being given to shows I do not watch or care about..

The soap opera’s are a whole different side of daytime.
There should be ”Soap Opera” awards/emmys, only..
It would be quite inexpensive and time saving.

So– I will not be watching the daytime emmy’s..
I just want to see the soap awards and they will be shown on line and also the winners, as always..

There are not enough daytime serials to justify a soap opera only awards show.

Timm’s comment is not far from the truth. However, he forgot to add that the venue for the “televised” show will be the parking lot of a Big Lots in Van Nuys. Meanwhile, various soap websites will give us very up-beat news bits excitedly announcing the show — with the positive spin that, by having the event in such a location, it allows soap fans a better chance to mingle with the actors!! Soap “stars” such as Kim Zimmer and Colleen Zenk will be manning a folding table to sign autographs (along with selling homemade baked goods and raffle tickets).… Read more »

I echo Timmm, Barbara … you speak what many continue to feel. Re: GL, I feel your pain more than you know as I followed LIGHT religiously for more than 32 yrs, and the last five yrs under Wheeler’s regime was like watching a dying relative on life-support. (I’ll never forget how disingenuous she came-off on that 60 MINUTES piece spotlighting the end of GL; she turned-on the crocodile tears about how she tried to save the show, when in fact it should’ve slipped quietly away BEFORE she assumed the reins and created the mess that was the Peapack remotes… Read more »

They should stream the daytime emmy’s online. It’s garbage the way the fans are being disrespected. They have been visible in one form or another every other year. Why Not this time????

ALL the CRAP thats online and they cannot air the DTE’s? What about airing it on this site?

Because their aren’t enough visible daytime fans to make airing the daytime Emmy’s either on TV or online profitable.

Will we really get to see the winners the next day and where? Can there at least be live tweets for us to follow on goldderby? How do we even access “Parachute TV”? Why can’t CBS do a daytime special of at least the 10 major soap opera categories? This is so frustrating! I am so hoping that Kassie DePaiva finally wins an Emmy (she could lose to Finola Hughes or Maura West, but I am predicting Kassie finally wins) and I really want to see her acceptance speech if she does win! It’s so unfair. I only care about… Read more »

I know i’m read vacillating, between; Kassie DePaiva and Mary Beth Evans

I’m TORN

I’ve been watching MBE: for upwards of 20 plus years

I’ve ( ONLY ) watched Kassie DePaiva: truly since she debuted on DAYS in 2014

and I’ve fallen “in love” with her ACTING

so… i’m with you… I want to see her acceptance speech

“and the Emmy goes to…. ”

Kassie DePaiva

ROAR

thunderous Heart full

so… if the emmy panel… truly wants to share the gold… I don’t think either woman would “care”

“and the Emmy goes to….”

I really miss the good old days of looking forward to the Friday night in mid May every year to watch the daytime emmy awards. Two years ago they were not broadcasted on any network but someone posted the full show up on youtube so hopefully that will happen again this year. I honestly will settle for someone putting up the video clips for the six acting categories cause if any of my favorites end up winning then I will hate not getting to see it.

There many fans who are older who won’t have access to anything online. It’s so sad. If they would just make it a simple awards show: presenters, clips, opens the envelope, yay I won, thank you… And on to the next. It’s so unfair. Daytime comprises a lot more shows than the 4 soaps… So what? Are we to believe that ALL of Daytime TV doesn’t have enough viewership? I will say again… ABC, NBC & CBS should rotate the show like they used to on each network w wet three years! Go back to the day when it was… Read more »

Looking forward to it!! (I’ve been blessed to work as a consultant for NATAS PR for the past five yrs during Daytime Emmys Week and look forward to on-air coverage both on the red carpet(s) and backstage reactions for WED’s Nominees Reception, FRI’s Creative Arts ceremony and SUN’s Main , so look for me online!)

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
